There is a whole lot of information out there about health, beauty, and food, some of it a little more contradictory that we would like. Some advocate local over organic produce, some the other way around; some say there is no way to be healthy and keep meat in your diet, others say the only an omnivore can be truly healthy; some push a hard line DIY lifestyle as the only way to keep your body and home safe and toxin free, others say everything in moderation. So how do we figure out which advice to follow?
My philosophy has always been to soak up as much knowledge as possible, and use common sense and a knowledge of one’s self and one’s own habits to figure out what works best. There is no universal cure-all or answer that will work for everyone. That said, there have definitely been some books that have been instrumental in my figuring out where to be strict and where to let things slide, as well as helping to create a general knowledge base that informs my decisions of what to put in, on, and around my body. Check out a few of these titles, or go the distance and read ’em all to make yourself a fabulously educated Organic Beauty!
